3 Ways to Save Money on Your Electric Bill This Summer

It may be hot outside, but we have some cool ways to save a few bucks!




1. Change Your Lightbulbs

You may not think this makes a difference, but some bulbs run at more than double the temperature.

Look for deals online or wherever you buy your home supplies and get the right kind of bulbs!


Halogen       -       279 degrees Incandescent   -  215 degrees CFL         -        148 degrees

LED       -       109 degrees *


(Plus LEDs last for years!)



2. Change Your Windows

While this may have a large upfront cost, it'll save you tons in the long haul. Old windows let the cool air out and the hot air in...and vice versa in the Winter! So replacing old windows will give you a double savings! BAM!






3. Insulate Your Walls

(and floors)


Similar to the first idea, this may have a decent upfront cost. But it'll pay itself off in no time at all!











Hope these help you stay cool this Summer & remember that IBD Construction is able to help with all of your home repair/renovation needs!
